To Jarome Iginla, stickhandling through media scrums just comes with the job.

So it was no surprise when a familiar topic came up Monday after the morning skate at the Honda Center.

Specifically, his future and whether he sees himself on the move come the Feb. 27 National Hockey League trade deadline.

Does the captain intend on staying with the Calgary Flames until the end of the season?

"Oh yeah, I intend to," Iginla said. "I think we're going to be a playoff team. I believe that . . . I don't want to speak about the Eastern Conference, but the Western Conference is tight. I don't think there's any favourite front-runner. I think if you make the playoffs, you have a shot."
